Shy Violet is a sheer purple base loaded with Picture Polish‘s signature scattered holo throughout.
I applied four (yes, 4) very thin coats of Shy Violet over Essence Hardening Nail Base. To be perfectly honest with you, three coats would have been sufficient, if I would have been more careful when applying my second coat which ended up sometimes thin, sometimes medium, definitely not appropriate with a sheer jelly like Shy Violet. However, the formula is jelly-perfection and applies wonderfully - all the issues were self-implied!! Dry time is on the fast side and once dry, it leaves the nails with a nice soft shine. All pictures are taken without Top Coat.
Final thoughts: I confess, I am a huge Picture Polish fan, and Shy Violet exites me as much as any of their other shades. I find Shy Violet very wearable and this purple extremely versatile for work or a nice dinner out.
I order my Picture Polish shades either with Llarowe, Harlow & Co or Pshiiit Boutique.
I look forward to reading your comments - thanks for dropping by!!!
